Moral Turpitude

Turpitude, what a great word. A judge in Oklahoma is facing suspension after allegedly using a penis pump on himself during trials. He says he received the pump as a joke gift and is being framed.

“On one occasion, Ms. (Lisa) Foster (Thompson’s court reporter for 15 years), saw Judge Thompson holding his penis up and shaving underneath it with a disposable razor while on the bench,” the petition reads.

Tur”pi*tude, n. [L. turpitudo, from turpis foul, base.] Inherent baseness or vileness of principle, words, or actions; shameful wickedness; depravity. –Shak.
